Anti-LGBT white supremacist to co-host new public affairs TV talk show that will Air on PBS

Published

on

Pat Buchanan, a longtime anti-LGBTQ white supremacist Christian nationalist pundit will co-host a re-boot of “The McLaughlin Group,” a Sunday morning public affairs, news, and commentary TV talk show know for the fast and hot takes of its conservative creator, John McLaughlin. The show will be syndicated by Maryland Public Television and air on PBS stations, Media Matters reports.

Buchanan, who worked in the Nixon, Ford, and Reagan White Houses, co-hosted the original version of CNN’s “Crossfire,” and was even a regular contributor on MSNBC, before the network parted ways with him over offensive commentary in one of his many books.

Indeed, Buchanan has a long and dark history of homophobia, anti-semitism, Holocaust diminution, racism, and bigotry., as NCRM repeatedly reported.

For example, Buchanan once claimed that “America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.”

(They were slaves, stolen from their homes, beaten, raped, separated from their families, whipped, and later, once slavery was over, suffered hundreds of years of inequality that continues to this very day.)

In 2011, Buchanan exploded over same-sex marriage, claiming it “is being imposed dictatorially,” during this screed:

“Vaughn Walker, a gay federal judge in San Francisco, has ruled that same-sex marriage is guaranteed by the 14th Amendment. Can anyone believe this absurd notion of equality was intended by or written into the Constitution by the Congress that produced the 14th Amendment?”

“Although gay marriage has been rejected in 31 states in referenda, judges continue to declare that such unions be treated as marriages,” Buchanan continued, literally denigrating the 17,000 marriages of California same-sex couples. “An idea of equality rejected democratically by voters is being imposed dictatorially. In December 2010, a repudiated liberal Congress imposed its San Francisco values on the Armed Forces, by ordering homosexuals admitted to all branches of the service. Indoctrination of recruits, soldiers, and officers into an acceptance of the gay lifestyle will transfer authority over the military, the most respected institution in America, to agents of a deeply-resented and widely detested managerial state.”

These are but two of countless examples of Buchanan’s white supremacy and anti-LGBTQ hate. Media Matters produced this short clip exposing Buchanan’s history of hate:

Media Matters, which reports that Buchanan will co-host the reboot of “The McLaughlin Group,” and that it will air on PBS stations, offers more evidence of Buchanan’s “Anti-LGBT Bigotry.”

Media Matters also reports that Buchanan “has spent decades calling for the defunding of public broadcasting,” complaining it “glorified homosexuality.”

Trump impeachment trial: 4 stories from first day spell doom for Mitch McConnell

Published

on

If the score was kept for the first day of the impeachment trial, it would show hefty losses for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

As Former Special Counsel for the Department of Defense, Ryan Goodman, pointed out, four major headlines perfectly reflect the cracks in the strangle-hold McConnell has had on his party.

First, McConnell was forced to change the impeachment hearing rules. After a huge uprising by Americans demanding to be able to watch the impeachment trial during normal human hours, senators told McConnell he'd lost the votes to hold proceedings after midnight.

‘Disease fanboy’: Internet slams NBC conservative for ‘rooting for pandemic’ to distract from Trump impeachment trial

Hugh Hewitt is once again under fire, this time for almost appearing to be glad a deadly SARS-related virus has been diagnosed in a patient in Washington state – saying additional diagnoses will take the focus away from the Senate's historic impeachment trial. Hewitt is a conservative Washington Post columnist, radio host, MSNBC and NBC contributor, and law professor who went from being a "Never-Trumper" to all-in for President Donald Trump.

"People care much more for their health than theater," said Hewitt via Twitter, referring to Trump's impeachment trial. The SARS-related virus, known as the Wuhan coronavirus, is named for an area of China where it was first found. It "has infected more than 300 people and killed six in an outbreak that has struck China, Thailand, South Korea, Japan and now the US," CNN reports.
